DA-5900 won't Record

My DA-5900 will no longer burn cds.
I goes thru the motions but in the end I don't get anything.
Could my burner be trashed.
It plays cds fine.

    Mine has started to do the same thing, but I am not convinced that it is not a stack of bad CDRs....

    My unit burns a very faint trace on a Memorex CD-R music disc that will not play on the same machine. The recorder "appears" to finalize the CD but repeated attempts produce no usable result.

    I have also tried TDK and Imation CD-R's without success.

    TDK's online help has told me this unit has been discontinued and there are no repair or replacement components.

    They say the 4x recording speed has been overtaken by new technologies.

You must keep the laser head clean all the time, otherwise you will have problems. Make sure you are using blank media cds that are supported by the serial copy management system.

My recorder was acting up as well. I opened the case, used a canned air blast on it and then cleaned it using a CD cleaner. It worked after that. Your mileage may vary.

You just need to plug your mic into a mixing board, and then take an output off the board into your 5900.
